Pinatubo@20 - A Photo Exhibit

The exhibit features rare photographs taken by photojournalists whose lives were endangered while 
covering the deadly eruption that saw daylight turn into night, destroyed millions of pesos worth of property and left thousands homeless.

The dramatic photographs on display hope to remind the people of the unforgettable "man against nature" episode in our country's history that tested man's fortitude.

Also to be showcased are images of present-day communities which have recovered from the devastation of June 15, 1991 and have moved on to rebuild their lives, as well as the award-winning photographs of Albert Garcia, the first Filipino to have won the prestigious World Press Photo grand prize with his compelling shots of Mt. Pinatubo's fury.

Opening and cocktails on September 19, 2011 at 1:30pm at the Atrium Second Floor of The Podium.

The photographs will also be exhibited during the Tambayayong Festival at the Southbay Pavilion in Carson City, California, USA on October 1-31, 2011.
